By The People

There are fundamental flaws in how American government operates today,
contrary to the Constitution and the vision of a representative republican form of governance.
I intend doing something about it: by educating and informing others who
are not even aware of the dangers.

Betting Big in Iowa

After months of speculation over how much effort Mitt Romney will put into participating in the Iowa caucus, the answer appears to lie elsewhere.
Romney is in New Hampshire; however, regardless of where Romney spends his time over the next few days, a steady and continuing increase in interest in the polices and ideas of Dr. Paul has sparked a reawakening of patriotism and pride in the nation's original concepts. State Senator Kent Sorenson, state campaign chairman for Ms. Bachmann, quit her efforts to join with the advocates for Dr. Paul when he announced his support for the Texas gentlemen at an evening rally. Dr. Ron Paul remains the only candidate to have followed the same convictions and principles through out his career.

To say Romney is "all in" in Iowa suggests a desperate attempt to sway the state. Likewise, Gingrich, whose campaign promises and concepts change depending on who he talks to, is now fading dramatically in the prediction markets and Yahoo's Signal, where he was never the front runner. The Real Clear Politics Involved seem to revolve around replenishing his war chest and worrying that a bad loss may be financially devastating.

Perry has shifted, once again, to an extreme position on abortion; he now states that abortion is not justified even in cases concerning rape, incest, or death of the pregnant mother. His campaign is directed at any psychological positions which might get traction in Iowa, where social engineering may sway conservatives who dominate the caucuses, but there's no question that his positions will change with his appeal outside Iowa to the general electorate, if he gets through Iowa.

Gambling is about demonstrating confidence in potential wins and losses. Romney is making an investment with a potential upside and huge potential cost. For Gingrich and Perry a poor showing in Iowa followed by a beating in New Hampshire would leave both limping and bleeding heading into South Carolina; they have serious costs if their bets do not succeed.
Dr. Paul does not believe in gambling with the Nation's Future. He is not concerned with upside, downside, showing, or potential. He is very concerned with actions based on concepts which will bring the Citizens of America back on to their feet in support of freedom, liberty, rights and prosperity for all.

Divided They Fall!

It should be apparent to anyone that is not sound asleep on their feet something ts very different in this year's campaigns than in previous ones. Not that any of the negative ads are worse than they ever have been; however, it seems there is a concerted effort by the privately owned major media to sway public opinion toward a particular GOP candidate.

Michelle Bachmann was the Tea Party favorite narrowly winning the Iowa Straw Poll in her own state. Soon after, Rick Perry joined the fray Bachmann's numbers dropped. Having followed the debates closely, I feel she fumbled several of the issues, as did Perry, who appeared to be just another puppet dangling by obvious strings. Bachmann has now suspended her campaign after the poor results she received in Iowa.

Herman Cain momentarily captured the attention of the public with his "Nine, nine, nine" tax plan, but public scrutiny of his past revealed some questions of his morality and fidelity. Perhaps that is also why Newt Gingrich has fallen off in most of the reported polls. When Cain withdrew, the privately owned major medias were telling us how Gingrich would gain the majority of the Cain supporters' votes and Romney might pick up the remainder. I read now where many of them are changing their support to Ron Paul, and his poll numbers seem to indicate that is the case.

Now that the Iowa Caucus results are in, it seems that the once touted Bachmann is in single digits,  Mitt Romney won with eight votes more than Santorum, and Ron Paul 3rd by percentage points. Romney is really just as good at being behind someone as he was when the GOP favorite was Senator John McCain. Romney finished third behind McCain who of course lost to Obama in the Presidential election. Now McCain who attacked Romney in 2008 is endorsing him for the GOP candidacy. More flip-flopping by the GOP elite just to deflect attention away from Ron Paul.

Ron Paul's sound principles and convictions backed by his thirty years record of voting was given little attention by his own party and faded in comparison to Obama's now failed promises and failed programs of change.

Steve Forbes has been speaking well of his Bilderberg selection, Rick Perry and his flat tax idea, while also taking cheap shots at Ron Paul. Dick Morris has tried trashing Ron Paul on Fox News, calling him a radical and extremist. Morris says he would dismantle the military and allow Iran to become a nuclear power and destroy Israel. A few are calling him an isolationist because Dr. Paul says, that it is better to enjoy commerce and trade with nations instead of preemptive military force to make others comply:  that America should lead by example and not by force.

Now there is a needed strategy on the part of the Democrats given Obama's ineligibility to be a presidential candidate in the 2012 election. So far, it has been a strategy of shifting blame that began with President Obama placing blame on former President Bush for the bailouts, deficits and wars. Now the Democrats are blaming the Tea Party Movement for making it impossible for the President to get any legislation passed to create jobs and stimulate the economy. The Tea Party Movement is not in office and never has been.

But everyone knows that what happened in 2010 was just a warning to all of Congress and the President. The people of America want and demand real change. Not hollow promises and ever failing policies and programs. Both political parties have been put on notice. Americans deserve the changes that will return our nation to that which was always admired and envied around the world.

The 'Restore America Now Plan' can cut spending by one trillion dollars in the first year of office and provide a balanced budget with spending limits by the third year. This can be accomplished by reductions in unnecessary government bureaucracy. suggested are the TSA, corporate subsidies, and unnecessary foreign aid. In addition to the reductions, an end to the never ending wars which have nothing to do with defense of the country. Bring the troops home, and back to their families. knowing the constitutional limits of a standing army, Dr. Paul would be well aware of how the Coast Guard, Marines and Navy can be used as a very formidable defense. He is not against a strong defense but he does stand with the same non-interventionist principles for which our founding fathers stood. Those principles were used to established routes of trade and commerce without intervening in how other nations govern their people.

Dr. Ron Paul stands alone among all other candidates to break the misguided recent trends of politics and policies that has all but destroyed us from within. We must prove that we can exercise our protests with the vote and make changes. Will enough fellow Americans come to their senses in time?

The American Dream: Has It Become a Nightmare?

Is there no sanity left in America?  Are we so well socially engineered by the propaganda machines that we no longer can see reality?  

We are quickly approaching the most important election in recent history, many of of the presidential candidates are thumping for war against Iran and dictators and terrorists around the world. This kind of irrational rhetoric of the war-mongering conservative right is a direct reflection of the lobbying influence that has been used since World War II:  remember President Eisenhower's warning concerning the Military Industrial Complex?

As a veteran and Statesman, Dr. Paul stands firm on national defense. He objects to militarism not the defense of the nation against real threats. We were once the richest nation on the planet, had no income tax, did not have a large military, remember the fleet at Pearl Harbor?  Although we were not "prepared for war" we were able to motivate our citizens and manufacture supplies to defeat major enemies on two fronts with the aid of our allies. We could have returned to that pre-war footing after WWII were it not for the vast profit potential of the war footing developed by major corporations.

Dr. Paul opposes the Patriot Act: American citizens need not be treated as criminals and subjected to indefinite detention to prevent terrorism and voted, “Nay.” President Barack Obama's staff has indicated he will sign the indefinite detention bill into law. The bill, called National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for the Fiscal Year 2012, has provisions that explicitly spell out the authority of the U.S. President to indefinitely detain U.S. citizens suspected of terrorism or supporting terrorists. This law completely bypasses the rights (like due process) promised to citizens in the Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Dr. Paul is equally opposed to the TSA's X-ray, Strip, and Grope behavior which displays an attitude unwarranted toward American Citizens. He explains that the airlines themselves need to make passengers feel safe to fly on aircraft, not the government. In maintaining the appearance of political correctness, we don't "profile" people, who because of their religion, might be terrorists. Dr. Paul points out the fact that Israel does not have a TSA-like "search and grope" but they have a secure airport and airline there. The Israelis do "profile" because it works for them.

Maintaining a secure national border and coast is a constitutional power granted to the federal government by the People. National Border Security is an important concern of the federal government:  But, that does not prohibit nor restrict the law enforcement branches within any state from enforcing State and federal laws to provide protection for its own residents. Illegal immigrants are certainly a problem and a burden on State Revenues and Resources. Dr. Paul being from Texas is well aware of these problems and similar problems faced by Arizona and California. Dr. Ron Paul explains this and demonstrates the respect for State sovereignty and States rights to protect their own borders and Citizens.

Many politicians are reactionary and want to pass laws to prevent every possibility of people harming others and themselves. In the name of a safe and secure citizenry, the majority of both House and Senate representatives we have elected and entrusted with protecting our freedoms which ensure our protection, they have instead usurped the U. S. Constitution and passed unconstitutional laws further eroding the sovereignty of the individual and of the States that comprise the union. Party favorites, Romney, Gingrich, Perry are clearly offering and pushing political agendas that do not include the corrective reduction of the Federal Government and which continue to blur the basic and fundamental rights of the States. During his entire political career, Dr. Paul has stood alone in his convictions and are reflected by his voting record which has demonstrated a solid understanding of the U. S. Constitution and the concepts on which it is based.

The European Union is wrought with debt:  many of its member nations are on the brink of economic collapse. E. U. member nations have followed the policies of the European Central Banks and if they continue they will join all the other bankrupt countries around the the world. If the United States continues to follow these same polices of the central banks and their U. S. representative, the privately owned Federal Reserve Banking System, America will soon join the ever growing number of bankrupt nations that have relied on policies of the central banks. Regardless of which presidential candidate you listen to, save one, all say they will slow the collapse but they cannot prevent it. All the presidential candidates are unwilling to take any action to correct this problem. The exception, Dr. Paul.

Dr. Paul accurately predicted the destruction of the American Economy and offered the reasons for it. He exposed the true nature, a system designed on the basis of debt, of the Federal Reserve System and explained how the United States can regain a sound global and national economic stance for its citizens by returning to a currency backed by real assets. Not on a system designed on the basis of debt. This is the reason that we, our children, and their children can never get out of debt: the debt only increases. Halting the Central banks from creating an unending flood of worthless Federal Reserve Notes is the solution. 

Mitt Romney has been very critical of China's manipulation of its currency and he suggests high tariffs are needed. Dr. Paul has offered what is needed is a solid and sound monetary system to insulate the United States from any effects of what any nation does to manipulate its own currency. Dr. Paul understands the current monetary system and why it cannot be repaired as so many other presidential candidates have insisted. It cannot be repaired because it is designed to be a debt-based system which always increases the national debt. Dr. Paul has stated that Congress should take its constitutional mandate and responsibility to enact a monetary system that is immune from manipulation by other nations and central banks. It has been demonstrated over thousands of years of commerce and trade, a monetary system that is backed with real assets is the only system.

All of the candidates have talked about a balanced budget amendment at one time or another; however, only Dr. Paul explains that balancing the budget is only part of the issue. If Congress wants to increase the budget and remain "balanced" they will have to (as they do now) create a source of revenue (fees/taxes) or borrow it from the Federal Reserve System to pay for it. A balanced budget in and of itself does nothing to curb spending and reign in the spending power of Congress. But Dr. Paul has explained that many of the programs funded by the federal government are unconstitutional and need to be eliminated. 

If We the People are to restore our liberties, to remain a sovereign nation, to rebound from the economic collapse close at hand, we must do something that is radically different from the actions that have led us to this point in history. We must stop choosing between the party favorite candidates that have always done exactly the same thing after being elected. The opposite of what they promised to do or nothing. We need to elect representation that will look out after our interests. We need a revolutionary candidate. There is a glimmer of light shining on the nation's darkest hours. 

There is only one man running for President who has withstood all of the hype and spin, and has been relentless in his defense of liberty, freedom, and upholding his oath of office. As the primaries loom ever closer, a viable presidential candidate is urgently needed but not to the extreme that any one will do. The gathering of presidential hopefuls have now adopted the concepts and ideas that one candidate has been explaining and discussing for thirty years. You have heard his name only occasionally. Romney, Gingrich, and Perry are not presidential material. 

Only one presidential candidate understands that actual change needs to occur. The necessary changes must conform to The U. S. Constitution. Dr. Ron Paul is the only presidential candidate willing to make the changes necessary to return our nation to one of freedom and liberty for all.

Obama Regime Warns All Americans: IF YOU FIGHT US YOU WILL DIE!

Obama Regime Warns All Americans: IF YOU FIGHT US YOU WILL DIE!

by on December 3, 2011

In one of the most stunning reversals of human rights in modern history the Federal Security Service (FSB) is reporting today that the Obama regime has issued a blunt warning to all American citizens that, in essence, states that any one of these once free people who dare to oppose their government they will be immediately killed and offered no chance to defend themselves before a Court and/or jury of their peers.
According to this report, this unprecedented attack was begun yesterday when the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) General Counsel Stephen Preston in responding to a question at an American Bar Association national security conference bluntly stated that “American citizens are not immune from being treated like an enemy if they take up arms against the United States.”
Obama regime lawyers further stated that only the Executive Branch, not the Courts, is equipped to make military battlefield targeting decisions about who qualifies as an enemy thus equating all American citizens as being potential “enemies of the state” thus effectively destroying the Constitution all of these government officials had sworn to defend.
As we had stated in our previous report about the destruction of the freedoms and liberties once enjoyed by the American people, the US Senate, likewise, voted this past week to expand the power of the Obama regime to target its own citizens by the passing of new law debated in secret allowing for the total military takeover of this once free country.
So frightening is this new law it caused the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) to issue an unprecedented warning that stated “The power is so broad that even U.S. citizens could be swept up by the military and the military could be used far from any battlefield, even within the United States itself.”
This FSB report notes that the actions now being undertaken by the Obama regime show its “outright contempt” for the democratic process and the US Constitution in that for the first time in American history military power is being put above that of civil authorities; a move many Russian intelligence analysts say can only be compared to the ending of freedoms in Russia under the Communists and Germany under the National Socialists (Nazis) preceding both World Wars of last century.
Even more astounding in the US Senates action, which according to noted American anti-war activist Justin Raimondo has created a “Presidential Dictatorship,” was Obama’s threat to veto this new law wasn’t because it went too far, but rather because it didn’t go far enough in allowing him to crack down on his own people.
To the reason behind the Obama regimes wanting to target its own citizens with state-sponsored murder and military rule, this FSB reports warns, is itsGreat Game” strategy to overturn the entire Middle East and Central Asia in order to gain control over the majority of our planets last few remaining fossil fuel energy resources and whose next targets are Syria, Lebanon and Iran.
Virtually unknown to the vast majority of the American people is that “The Plan” to conquer the Middle East and Central Asia was revealed by General Wesley Clark (Ret.) who on 2 March 2007 [watch video HERE] stated that 10 days after 9/11 while walking through the Pentagon he was approached by another General who told him that the Bush regime was making preparations to invade Iran and at least 7 other Middle Eastern and Central Asian nations over the next 5 years.
Unfortunately for the American war hawks, however, was the Bush regime wasn’t able to complete their goal in the time they allotted themselves because they underestimated the fierce resistance they were met with, but since Obama took office has been able to gain speed.
Now, most ominously, with the US Senate passing by a unanimous vote to place sanctions on Iran’s Central Bank this FSB report warns that conflict is “all but assured” as Iran had previously stated that such an actions would be considered by them as an “act of war.”
The FSB further notes in their report that the American peoples ability to counteract the measures being put into place against them by the Obama regime appear to be “all but nonexistent” due to the “gulag mentality” instilled in these once free people through their educations system said to be virtually indistinguishable from their prisons [see video HERE] which hold more prisoners than all of the other worlds jails combined.
Current news stories coming out of the United States more than back up this FSB assessment of the way American children are being treated like criminals and include: 1.) A 4-year-old girl arrested for shoplifting at a Safeway store and made to sign a statement banning her from this store for life. 2.) A 13-year-old boy arrested, handcuffed and jailed for burping in class. 3.) A 6-year-old child charged with “sexual assault” when found “playing doctor” with another student. 4.) Two 12-year-old students investigated for “sex crimes” after they kissed in school.
And if the treatment of America’s children isn’t bad enough, new reports emerging from the United States by Obama regime supporters are now warning that Christians are a “national security threat” because they place their belief in God above that of their government.
To the future these Americans will awaken into should they fail to heed the many warnings being shouted out to them was described best by George Orwell in his seminal work 1984 wherein he warned….“People simply disappeared, always during the night. Your name was removed from the registers, every record of everything you had ever done was wiped out, your one-time existence was denied and then forgotten. You were abolished, annihilated: vaporized was the usual word.”
In order to avoid this future, however, these Americans would be well advised to listen to the advice given to them by their Founding Father Thomas Jefferson who warned… “I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”
So today, as millions of American children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered, one does indeed wonder when these once free people will awaken from their long slumber before all is lost.

The Decline: The Geography of a Recession

This animation by Latoya Egwuekwe shows the shocking decline of jobs across the United States. But even with these startling statistics, it does not include many other Americans who are not counted for reasons such as part-time employment, ineligibility for unemployment benefits, businesses that were forced to close, etc. Including all figures would no doubt, bring the unemployment figure up into the 20%-30% range.

We need to stop electing party favorites and elect representation that works directly for the People and not the special interests. We need a President with the intestinal fortitude to stand up to big corporations and stop their interference with legislation and due process of law. We need to restore Constitutional integrity to the federal government.

We can accomplish all of this by simply making Ron Paul our President and supporting him with a Congress that will protect and defend the Constitution and not shred it.

U.S. Supreme Court has Ruled Obama Ineligible.

The minor, although important issues of either challenging whether or not Obama was born in the United States or the authenticity or kind of birth certificate as covered in an article, "Please... help little Barry!  Or who will shoot this Indonesian snake? by MKUltra - Part I.", becomes irrelevant to the issue.

Barack Hussein Obama II/AKA Barry Soetoro is not now nor has he ever been President of the United States; however, you can be pardoned for missing the ruling as it came down, not in the last few weeks or days, but during 1875.
The requested action is now simple, that all Federal courts uphold the rulings of the United States Supreme Court. Two lawsuits, and additional lawsuits put before the courts, one in Arizona and the other in Tennessee, by the Liberty Legal Foundation promises to render it impossible for the Democratic National Committee to place Obama’s name on the 2012 ballot.

The argument before the two courts is plain. "Natural Born Citizen" was not defined in the U. S. Constitution. It was later defined as children born of two U.S. citizens' regardless of the location of the birth. The U. S. Supreme Court found:  The Constitution does not, in words, say who shall be natural-born citizens. At common-law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. Resolution of that question was ultimately left to the decision of the United States Supreme Court and during 1875, that determination was made in a ruling and the decision was handed down:  Minor v, Happersett, Both parents must be U. S. Citizens.

Obama's problems, by his own admission and by records of the State Department are this:

Obama's father was not a United States citizen; and therefore, by way of the decision in Minor v. Happersett the United States Supreme Court during 1875 settled the matter of "Natural Born Citizen", since Obama's father was not a U.S. citizen, Barack Hussein Obama II/AKA Barry Soetoro is not a "Natural Born U.S. Citizen."

For a person, as his or her party's nominee to run for President, the party must issue certification that the person named is eligible under the United States Constitution to become President. The Constitution specifies that in order to become president, the person must be a "Natural born citizen", which was defined by decision of the United States Supreme Court in 1875. The Democratic National Committee could not possibly have been unaware of this legal ruling. It should be painfully evident that the DNC decided to risk-it-all and fraudulently certify Obama as eligible. This action of DNC Certification violated the U. S. Constitution Article 2, Section 1. Paragraph 5.

The quick and accurate response is clear. Obama was never eligible to become President on two counts: He is not 1. a "Natural Born Citizen:  U. S. Supreme Court Minor v. Happersett", 2. Nor has he ever been able to show on close examination, to anyone's satisfaction, a long form birth certificate from any State, because it does not exist. By Obama's own public admission he was not born in the United States and his wife and grandmother have repeatedly said the same, that he was born in Kenya, South Africa. Obama is ineligible to serve the United States in the capacity of President. 

The United States Supreme Court handed down the ruling in 1875 and it is the law.

If the Democratic Party should again certify Obama, the members of the committee would be just as guilty of breaking the law as they were the first time. The committee members would be acting to perpetrate a fraud, just as they did the last time, and they will be the parties who are solely responsible for that certification. Why hasn't the U. S. Department of Justice taken any action?  Why hasn't Congress taken any action? 

I wrote to my State Senators and Representatives repeatedly, and received form letter responses that provided no answers regarding my questions.

I then wrote to the only newspaper in my area regarding this matter and was told over the telephone that they, the editors, were not allowed to discuss or print anything regarding this issue in any manner what-so-ever.

A much more serious problem now faces America:  It is the actions of this impostor to the presidency. Signatures, laws, resolutions, executive orders, appointments, treaties and agreements. Anything he has done is null and void because he is not a U. S. Citizen and could never have been the U. S. President and never was. The true and real security of our nation has been breached and vast damage has been done. And it continues.

The Senators and Representatives of the U. S. Congress have failed to uphold their oath of office and defend the United States Constitution.

Eliminate Newt Gingrich

There is no denying that Newt Gingrich is articulate and well read, and that he is a formidable debate opponent. A Lincoln-Douglas debate would certainly be an advantage for the former Speaker of the House. With no teleprompter to aid him, Obama would not stand a chance in a head-to-head match with the Newt.

That does not mean that I want him as my President. He divorced his first wife soon after her bout with cancer and surgery. He cheated on his second wife with a House staff worker, 23 years his junior, and he also changed his faith from Lutheran to Southern Baptist and now he claims to be a devote Catholic.

Just not too certain with wanting Newt Gingrich as a neighbor, because no telling whether he will be a friend or foe. I guess it would depend on how much profit he can get out of the relationship. He is founder or chair of American Solutions for Winning the FutureCenter for Health Transformation, Gingrich Productions and Renewing American Leadership

He was sanctioned by the House Ethics Committee and paid $300,000.00 due to allegations and charges of "check kiting" and tax violations. Nancy Pelosi was on that ethics panel, the same Nancy Pelosi that shared a  couch with Mr. Gingrich when he was lobbying for legislation on global warming. I bet he would like that to go away now that he is looking to be President.

There is nothing that can be uncovered that would be any less damning than that which is already widely known about Newt Gingrich. While the privately-owned and controlled major media still pushes the party favorites, pitting Gingrich and Romney as the "front-runners" and even blaming the Tea Party Movement as the reason that there is so much division in the GOP, it is evident by the straw polls and the other polls that neither Gingrich nor Romney are gaining any ground except on one another.

Gingrich favored the individual mandate in 2005 when then First Lady Hillary Clinton was pitching a national health care agenda. Now he don't think that is a good idea. Well Mr. Gingrich, fellow House Republican Ron Paul said back then that it was unconstitutional but nobody paid much attention.

We the People are paying attention to Ron Paul and many more are joining to support Dr. Paul as our next President. And I don't care what Hannity and O'Reilly think, or any other "thumper" for the party faves.

Process of Elimination: Newt Gingrich

It should not be a surprise to anyone that Mitt Romney is no longer the top pick of the GOP. His third-place finish behind John McCain in 2008 indicates that he wasn't the  party favorite then either. So now they, along with the privately-owned major media are pushing former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich as the one to beat Obama in 2012. But I question his integrity and so should you.

Infidelity with his first wife, asking her for a divorce while she was recuperating from surgery, and he was living with his third wife (Callista Bisek) in his apartment in DC at the time, and not paying bills for his wife and children. Can he be trusted to be faithful to We the People? I don't think so.

Gingrich also has to answer for his book deals with Rupert Murdoch's Harper Collins publishing company. Was it a $2.5 million or $4.5 million deal? Seems that Murdoch offered multi-million dollar book deals to other politicians in China and Great Britain, where he needed legislative support. Newt Gingrich is among that group that includes former British Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher. Seems that NBC complained about FOX TV being owned by a foreign national which is against US law. Newt also was criticized by his GOP peers and he dropped the lucrative $4.5 million advance in favor of a still quite generous royalty arrangement.

Gingrich claims to be a "hawk" regarding the US military, but he did not serve in the armed forces, instead obtained deferments to avoid the draft and service during the Vietnam War era. Remember that his current rival Ron Paul served as a Flight Surgeon in the United States Air Force, and Paul is opposed to much of the militarism that Gingrich supports.

And let us not forget those ads with Nancy Pelosi about global warming. As President, will he reduce taxes on profits only to add taxes to carbon emissions? I am not willing to elect him to find out.  Having a bit of "handicapping" experience, it serves the best interests of all concerned to pass on Gingrich, and look at why Ron Paul will make the best President for all Americans.

More on Newt Gingrich can be read here at .

A Process of Elimination: Rick Perry

There are many reasons why Rick Perry needs to be eliminated as a candidate, the HPV innoculations, approval of free education for illegal immigrants, but the most damning is his involvement with the Bilderberg Group.

Selling off public lands and roads to foreign investors to further the creation of the North American Union and the end of the United States as a sovereign nation. He accepted generous contributions from Merck Pharmaceuticals, who just happens to manufacture Gardisil, the HPV antivirus drug.

After listening to him speak at so many of the televised debates, I noticed that he has been picking up on points made by fellow Texan, Ron Paul, who does not think much of his Governor, claiming that since Perry's tenure, he has been paying more in taxes.

Next: Mitt Romney: Mr. Flip-flop

Bye, Bye, Barney!

According to the New York Times, Barney Frank will retire after 2012, mainly (he says) due to the redistricting in his congressional district. I for one will not miss him at all, in fact I am disappointed that no one had the courage to indict him on fraud charges for his role in the mortgage debacle.

There is only one thing that I personally can say positive about the man: He co-sponsored a bill to repeal the federal prohibition on cannabis along with fellow Congressman Dr. Ron Paul, the best Presidential candidate. In a field of mediocre GOP hopefuls, Ron Paul stands far above the rest.

Frank also co-authored the Dodd-Frank Act, which many GOP presidential candidates vow to repeal. Seems odd that Frank received over $350,000 of his 2010 campaign funding from the very same Wall St. brokers he is so eager to criticize. Of course now that we know how the Federal Reserve loaned our money to those banks and financial institutions that were "too big t o fail" and people still lost their homes, Mr. Frank is walking away to begin a new career on the lecture circuit. Dodd cut and ran last year.

“To my disappointment, the leverage you have within the government has substantially diminished,” he said. “The anger in the country, the currents of opinion are such that the kind of inside work I have felt best at is not going to be as productive for the foreseeable future, and not until we make some changes. And so I firmly believe that my ability to be an advocate on the kinds of issues I most care about will be as great outside as inside.”

Well, hell Mr. Frank, We the People are not going to take government abuses anymore! We want to clean house and restore the Constitution as the guide by which others will follow. We are tired of "leaders" who are elected to office to "follow" our direction, not those of the special interest lobbyists, like those that fund Barney Frank's campaign. Even Obama will reap campaign rewards from Wall St. No matter, We the People will make sure he is a one term President and he can join Barney on the talk show and lecture circuits. How about the Barney and Barry Hour? With or without a teleprompter?

Maybe he can get Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters to follow him out of Washington? Well, one can hope for change!

Hope & Change: Super Failure

I know that many Americans are disappointed and even stressed at the the dismal results of the Super Committee's failure to reach a deal. The Democrats will blame the Republicans and the Republicans will blame the Democrats. In fact, the finger pointing has already begun, and that is no surprise either.

The fair and balanced but conservative leaning major media outlet will have you believe that a former third placed Presidential candidate is the nation's best hope of defeating Obama. As if that is the only goal that We the People have.

I can't say that I find either party lacking in fault for where we are today. Both parties have contributed to a bloated federal bureaucracy, unbridled spending, and ridiculous laws, mandates, regulations and taxes that have only served to drive manufacturing out of the US and into more business friendly nations around the world. But some candidates will have you think that it's China's fault. Not so.

The blame lies with We the People plain and simple. Yes, it's all your fault for buying the bullshit that both major political parties and the privately-owned major media spoon-feed you daily. Why didn't Romney beat McCain in 2008? What makes Romney capable of beating Obama now? I can beat the sitting President with the record he has compiled thus far. But I am not seeking office. But I do have a candidate that I will support and vote for.

In my life, I have never found a candidate that represents the People with such honesty and sincerity, with such strict adherence to the Constitution, as Congressman Ron Paul. Dr. Paul's record stands out among all representatives in both Houses, as exemplary in voting and voicing the will of We the People.

Ron Paul predicted the housing market crisis a decade or more ago and everyone said he was a lunatic. He voted against every single bailout offered and against most spending bills that did not include spending for the military troops in combat and support roles in Iraq and Afghanistan. And he wants to bring them all home now!

He is the only Presidential candidate who has spoken out against the secretive practices of the Federal Reserve Board, calling for an audit of the Fed and its eventual replacement with sound money. Money that is backed by assets of gold and silver, reserves of oil and coal, natural gas and other commodities that boost the GDP instead of reduce it.

Ron Paul's courage is displayed when he stands up against all sanctions against Iran for their development of a nuclear weapon. He points out how many nukes Russia (former USSR) and China have and how we played war games with those nuclear arsenals without attacking each other. Common sense instead of emotional response to the spin by the military minded.

He is all for defense of our nation and wants to secure our borders from criminals and terrorists, not just illegal immigrants that come here as many legal immigrants do, for the opportunities to become self reliant and even prosperous. And he is all for taking away the "magnets" of social programs that further entice people to come here illegally while burdening the People with the bill.

Ron Paul will be a President that will restore the rights of the sovereign States and to the sovereign People residing in them. He will reduce the size of government, reduce the pay of government officials and employees to equal that of the private sector, so as not to compete with the private sector for employees.

Isn't it time we all stopped picking from the same menu offered by the two major parties and the media?

American Honor & Nobility Without Title

From : The Missing 13th Amendment

"If any citizen of the United States shall accept, claim, receive, or retain any title of nobility or honour, or shall without the consent of Congress, accept and retain any present, pension, office, or emolument of any kind whatever, from any emperor, king, prince, or foreign power, such person shall cease to be a citizen of the United States, and shall be incapable of holding any office of trust or profit under them, or either of them."

If the colonists forgot the lessons of goldsmith bankers, the American Revolution refreshed their memories. To finance the war, Congress authorized the printing of continental bills of credit in an amount not to exceed $200,000,000. The States issued another $200,000,000 in paper notes. Ultimately, the value of the paper money fell so low that they were soon traded on speculation from 5000 to 1000 paper bills for one coin.It's often suggested that our Constitution's prohibition against a paper economy -- "No State shall... make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a tender in Payment of Debts" -- was a tool of the wealthy to be worked to the disadvantage of all others. But only in a "paper" economy can money reproduce itself and increase the claims of the wealthy at the expense of the productive."Paper money," said Pelatiah Webster, "polluted the equity of our laws, turned them into engines of oppression, corrupted the justice of our public administration, destroyed the fortunes of thousands who had confidence in it, enervated the trade, husbandry, and manufactures of our country, and went far to destroy the morality of our people."

It seems obvious that if the Federal Reserve keeps printing more notes, they will decrease in worth as there are no assets to make them worth anything. The currency of the United States is only backed by the good credit and trust of the People. Since there are more People unemployed and requiring support from the government, there are also less Americans paying taxes, Congress still borrows and spends, and now that the US has had their credit rating downgraded, they are still looking to spend more.

As I listen to Members of the House and Senators speak, and the lectures of "fair share" taxing of the "wealthy" by the President and his Administration, I am reminded of all the great nations that have fallen before us, and being broke is a major cause. Reagan was in office when the military spending of the Soviet Union could no longer sustain itself and take care of its People.
If we wait for a new President or Congress to fix things, I'm afraid it won't get fixed. The government has been unable to fix anything economically and all they do is throw money at it and hope it will change. It didn't work for Bush and it is not working for Obama. No surprise there really, after all, you cannot expect different results when you do the same things over and over. Someone famous called that the "epitome of insanity."

No, this time must be different. This time We the People must choose new representation, but not from the favorite ranks of the two predominant political parties. No, we need to pick candidates that are either not career politicians or have demonstrated by their deeds and words that they stand for liberty, property, and limited government. We need representation that has the courage to tell the truth even when it is not politically correct or motivated by popular support.

I find that very few Americans speak out against "water boarding" and torture in general, claiming that it was "necessary" to save lives. How many Americans were tortured by Nazis and Japan? How many Americans suffered the cruelty as POWs in Vietnam? John McCain knows what that is like. But what makes America exceptional is that we did not use such methods on prisoners and still won the war. Would torture have saved lives? Maybe. But the damage to the nation's character would have lasted for several lifetimes, and if we take that course it will be very difficult to be that example of liberty and humanity that makes the United States exceptional.

One way we can lead by example is to elect a President that supports the Constitution and demonstrates the ethics and morals that made the US a great nation. It wasn't our military might, it was honor and integrity that pushed innovation and invention. We made the products the world wanted and were proud of them too. Now we buy and sell products made in other nations, as more American factories close and jobs never return.

A President nor a Congress can create jobs. The best they can do is create an environment where businesses can be productive and prosperous. But we need to have a stable currency that has worth. When the US dollar had worth, there was no high taxes. In fact, there was no income tax at all prior to FDR and the New Deal. More like a "raw deal" is what we got.

A Simple Truth: Lead By Example

What makes America exceptional? Is it its military might? It certainly is no longer the opportunities for prosperity. A few great men had their own ideas about America. This short video highlights them.

When the privately-owned major media places Mitt Romney as the front-runner, I laugh. He lost in 2008 to John McCain and we know how well McCain did against Obama. Newt Gingrich is an intelligent man and has a strong love for America, but he stands for killing American citizens that are labelled "terrorists" or "enemy combatants" by "intelligence" and that is okay? Santorum wants the government to define marriage and I say that is the province of faith and religion and not government. The marriage license issued by a State is a contract between two people who upon their oaths (vows) pledge to love one another and take of each other. Legally they need to be entitled the same benefits as any other couple relationship.

We don't want our troops to be tortured, so it is only fitting that we do not employ such methods on others. It is not a matter of effectiveness or necessity. It it a matter of leading by example.

JFK said, "Ask not, what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country." What you can do is save the United States, and elect Ron Paul as President in 2012.

The primary purpose of government is to serve the people. The government serves us by protecting the nation from enemies on the seas and through commerce and trade with foreign nations. The government that was formed by our founders was unique in all the world, in that it was designed for the People to be self-governed, through a delegation of representatives .

We have strayed far afield from the visions those founders had of what this nation would become. What was once a thriving economy as the richest nation in the world, now is on the brink of total economic collapse and yet there are very few who really identify what the problems are and how to solve them.

I personally do not subscribe to the political parties as my representation, in fact I an against the domination of the electoral process by the Democratic and Republican parties, who deny equal access to other parties. Even independent candidates and voters are prohibited from voting in most primary elections. For the most part, people don't seem to mind this because for most of the voters, they would be "confused" by more than choice between one or another candidate. At least that is what most party politicians would like you to believe.

I consider those of you who read and follow my blog to be intelligent and knowledgeable individuals, who don't buy into the propaganda "du jour", and yet I find some of you who do comment on my posts to show a lack in thinking beyond the spin of the media. This seems to be inversely proportional to education, that is, the more educated people seem to stay closest to the party politics, while those with less formal schooling are those that appear to be more or less, outside-the-box thinkers.

Bill Gates, Richard Branson and Steve Jobs all lacked a PhD and yet all were outside-the-box and very successful in life. Each of them has their own purpose and as we witnessed it for ourselves, they succeeded where many felt they could not possibly do so.

Like them, I too have a purpose in life, and part of that purpose is realized with every comment and donation I receive from my readers. To all of you who have been so generous, I thank you. You have acknowledged me in a profound manner and that motivates me to go forth.

I know that I am not always right in life and make as many mistakes as anyone else. When you point out an error and I research your correction, I will make it known that that I stand corrected. And on the same note, if you criticize or offer an opinion that is not well informed, I will call you on that too. We have to teach one another to move forward. There is no positive movement when we are distracted by arguing and name calling.

Let's leave that for the politicians who have nothing to offer us except to denounce their opponents. In my post, What Would Really Happen If Ron Paul Were To Be Elected President I re-posted what Bill Sardi wrote about Ron Paul. Several people have written back claiming that Ron Paul is a wimp, he will decimate the military, or simply state that he is not electable. Let me address the last comment first: He was elected by his Texas constituents to 12 terms in Congress. As far as being a wimp, he has stood toe-to-toe on the House floor with the most powerful in government and stood practically nose-to-nose with Rick Perry in debate. As a veteran of the USAF and the recipient of more contributions from the military than all the other candidates combined, I will just say that I feel those in service now and the veterans who served before all seem to know more about it than I do. If the men and women of the military back him, why would anyone listen to a commentary on TV for an opinion?

What is the purpose of backing a candidate? Is it because you (and I) feel that candidate will best serve us or simply the best chance to beat the incumbent?

Will Cain Be Able?

This past week has taken its toll on the nation with holidays approaching and no end seen in this stubborn attempt by an inept Administration, to do the right thing to ease out of this depression. But our attention has been drawn to the alleged smear campaign regarding the alleged sexual harassment charges, brought against Republican Presidential Candidate Herman Cain.

Now I see two issues here, and only one really concerns me as to Herman Cain as a candidate that I would vote for. Of course the drooling media outlets are all hoping for something juicy. And the question there is simply what did her do or say or both? My only question is, was he lying? Will Herman overcome this attack on his character by whomever dug up this issue from his past? Or will he fade into the mist like Gary Hart did several years ago? Questions and questions, when what we need is answers. Where is the answer man when you need him?

When all is said and done, I don't want a President who will lie to me just to get elected. How has that worked out in recent history? I want a President that will tell me the truth, even when it is not what will make the polls go up. I want a President that will have the courage to do what is necessary to restore the honor and integrity of the United States of America, as an example first, and a strong defense secondary to the ethics and morals of its People.

There comes a time when the honest assessment of cause is addressed to fix a problem. Are the solutions being offered those that have worked before or are they conservative measures that will ease things back to where they were?

I don't know about you, but I don't want to go back to the way it was, I rather want to create a new path to ensure a prosperous future to be enjoyed by a free population that are examples of self-governance as they once were in the United States.

We need a Jefferson, a Madison, a true patriot that abides by the limitations of government. A President who will humbly serve We the People, who will restore liberty to us and to the sovereign States. Now all we have to do is find and elect that person.

Cronyism Costs Taxpayers Trillions

It doesn't take a PhD. in economics to see how much taxpayer revenue and borrowed funds are being wasted on "investments" in alternative energy projects. And while the President in busy with campaigning and finger pointing at the GOP-led House to pass another "stimulus" bill disguised as a jobs bill, there are several bills stacked up in the Democrat-controlled Senate that Harry Reid & Company have been ignoring. Several of them are budgets which will prevent another last-minute panic to push through a budget so that government won't be shut down. Sound familiar?

Now subpoenas are sent to the White House because the Administration is stonewalling and not providing information about the Solyndra scandal. The President however pokes at Congress passing a reaffirming resolution to keep "In God We Trust" as the national motto while his jobs bill gets no vote of confidence.

The biggest contributors to the Obama campaign are the same ones that received huge bailouts, many that pay no taxes (General Electric) and yet Obama says he wants the rich to pay their "fair share." The jobs in his "jobs bill" will create "thousands" of jobs in construction, bridges and highways, all union and all costing the taxpayers. The budgets thus far all have not cuts spending, instead they raised the credit limit (Can you do that with your bank or credit card company?) for themselves and spent more money that they had to borrow.

With the support of grassroots patriots, organized as the Tea Party Movement, the majority in the House shifted to the right, and gains were also made in the Senate, although short of the desired majority. But in a way, that is good for Americans who can plainly see (if they choose to) where the real problems are and with whom. They are not found in examining the sexual harassment allegations of Herman Cain, or the religious beliefs of Mitt Romney.

I can go down the list of the candidates vying for the GOP nomination and I am sure to find good things to say about each. But in all but one of them, we can discover past indiscretions, that even as isolated incidents, call into question their integrity and ability to serve the People and their Constitution.

There are many things that are going wrong in the United States, many issues that the government, the President cannot solve. The best thing for them to do is remove the barriers to free markets and lower taxes to stimulate business development. There are too many laws and department level regulations that inhibit business development and growth, moving innovation and jobs overseas along with revenue from profits. ARRA and TARP are but two prime examples of wasted spending and a burden to the American taxpayer. Guaranteed loans in excess of one half billion dollars to Solyndra is an exclamation point at the end of the phrase, "government waste and total ineptitude."

After listening and reading all of the so-called solutions that all these candidates are offering, and as we watch and listen to the debates and the analysis of those debates, one thing seems evident to me. Only Ron Paul is offering the tough and truthful answers to all of the questions, with the same consistency and persistence that We the People need and want in a President. A man who seems almost meek, but don't let that fool you, as he has been as tough as anyone in Congress that you will find. Not once can you find him changing his mind on issues, it is why the GOP and media resort to name-calling when they do have to acknowledge him. Mostly they just tend to ignore him.

We know that the major media will do whatever it is paid to do, regardless of how "fair and balanced" they profess to be. It is We the People that need to take back our liberty and choose our President, not from the rank and file party favorites, but from the Spirit of Liberty, the Constitution, Free Markets and Sound Money.

Ron Paul is that President!

Democracy or Republic? Your Choice!

Parallels are being drawn in the media between the Tea Party Movement and the Occupy Wall Street mobs. So I thought I would do some research myself and see where these parallels are. What I find is quite contrary to what is portrayed by the privately-owned major media.

Where does the First Amendment end and public nuisance and disorderly conduct laws begin?  I cannot see where freedom to speak out has any bearing on defecating in public. Regardless of your opinions of the law enforcement department, those vehicles are paid for with tax dollars and not private investors funds.

Some of the banners are downright humorous. So long as the owner is cleaning up after his protesting canine, I see no problem here. But there are things that really are immoral and treasonous being done and I don't see the President or any Democrats speaking out. Most of them are praising these protests as the demonstration of democracy, the "American People" protesting against the "fat cats."

So tell me then how defacing the flag of America is a patriotic thing? Explain to me how this act demonstrates anything American? Because from where I sit this looks anti-American and that is without judgement about the person standing on our symbol of liberty. I would like one of those analysts or commentators to explain this action as anything else than what it truly is.

But they insist that these OWS protesters somehow have something in common with the Tea Party Movement protesters. Perhaps I am not aware of something that these analysts know?

So I went looking for Tea Party protests and found some interesting photos. In the very first photo I came upon, I saw a woman with an umbrella that had a sign on her abdomen.  She was protesting high taxes in Washington, D.C. not on Wall Street. The next photo I saw involved the U.S. flag. It demonstrates a contrast from the OWS protester that was standing on a flag.

These Tea Party protesters were carrying signs that protested the President and Congress. This one was calling for liberty and Constitutional law.  Again, it is a contrast to OWS not a parallel at all.  

Americans will have a choice with elections this month and again in 2012 when they must choose a President. These elections more than any others in this nation's history will be more important to the lives of every single individual that calls himself/herself "American." These election will determine whether we will restore the republic to a free and sovereign one, or will be surrender to the takeover and enslavement that economic collapse will produce

If the media is pushing a candidate I won't support that candidate. If the media is ignoring a candidate I will research that candidate and see if he or she is worth supporting based on their ideology but also on their record.  This is true for all levels of government, not just the federal government.

Like the Templar Knight said in the film, Indiana Jones: The Last Crusade, "Choose wisely!"

What Would Really Happen If Ron Paul Were To Be Elected President?

received the following in email this morning. Kudos to the author for writing such a concise and elegant piece . I felt it was important enough to share with as many people as possible. Please give credit to the author and source.

What Would Really Happen If Ron Paul Were To Be Elected President?
By pollywog

by Bill Sardi
So what would really happen if Ron Paul were as elected President?

President Paul would immediately push for $1 trillion cut in federal spending (per year, not the $3 trillion that Democrats proposed over 10 years with half of that from increased taxes).

President Paul would have the authority as commander-and-chief to withdraw troops from overseas, within limits of treaty commitments which must be honored (US supplies defense for Saudi Arabia, many other nations). To the extent possible, the US would cease being the world's policeman and plunderer of foreign economies (Iraq, Libya). The US would cease being a war economy. President Paul would also push to eradicate foreign aid which essentially is bribery, often to foreign despots who the US quietly supports because they hold a strong hand over their masses.

President Paul would have some empty chairs in his Cabinet – the Department of Commerce, Department of Education and other Cabinet positions would be eliminated. Civil service employees would be ushered into other government jobs.

President Paul would likely demand, using his bully-pulpit, a regular audit of the Federal Reserve (recall the FED pushed $13 trillion of short-term loans out the door in the world financial crisis without any oversight, which resulted in worldwide inflation and the unrest we now see in foreign countries – Egypt,Libya, etc – as a result of rising food prices.).

You probably don't know that the Federal Reserve bank takes a 6% cut off the top of all interest it collects as middleman between the US Treasury Dept and local banks. (President John F Kennedy realized this, recognized it would result in huge federal debts in the future, which have now materialized, and cut the Federal Reserve entirely out of the equation in 1963 by directly issuing US Notes, not Federal Reserve currency, into the economy. Of course, shots fired in Dallas ceased that practice and all those US Notes were quietly withdrawn from circulation.) That cut for the central bankers would be eliminated in a Ron Paul Presidency.

President Paul would likely demand and personally oversee an audit of the gold at Ft. Knox. Wouldn't you like to be there for that (live cameras please)? If the gold isn't there, who absconded with it and where is it now? (Might not have to look far, it could be stashed in Federal Reserve bank vaults – recall, the Federal Reserve is not federal, it is a bunch of private banks who may have absconded with the nation's gold supply).

With a public groundswell of support, President Paul would oversee the abolishment of the Internal Revenue Service, freeing Americans of the onerous and treacherous task of figuring out the taxes they owe (recall the Secretary of the Treasury couldn't accurately figure out his own taxes). No more debtors prison for not filing tax forms properly (yep, some Americans are in prison for this). That would free-up about 6 billion man-hours and $250-300 billion of money now committed to tax preparation. Real money, not the fractionated loan money, would be returned to the economy.

There would be a re-adjustment period as the nation figures out how to rebuild employment without phony government jobs programs, but anticipate an eventual US renaissance. The US would be spared the fate of Greece which has 40% employment in the government sector, placing those jobs on the back of the remaining tax payers there.

Without an income tax the Federal Reserve would have no conduit to siphon money back out of the economy to limit inflation and it would have to cease its inflationary money printing practices. Mothers of young American children would be told that their struggles to see their kids get ahead in this country will not be futile as the Federal Reserve's planned inflation policy would be put to a halt. If your kids can't earn a better income than the rate of inflation (now 7-11%, government says it is only ~3%) they will surely be impoverished.

For example, if an American child was born in 1990 and her/her mother as sole bread winner was making $35,000 a year on the date of that child's birth, that child would have to earn $60,758 today (2011) to equal his/her mother's salary in 1990. Soccer moms should shout loudly for a Ron Paul Presidency. Your children have no future if one of the other pretenders is elected. Without currency reform, all other reforms become meaningless. The elites will continue to plunder and undermine the wealth that you create.
President Ron Paul would push for the federal government to get out of the real estate lending business. By Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac ensuring home loans, lenders generated loans based upon low teaser interest rates (subprime, ALT-A) and unverified incomes and then funneled these bad loans on up to these quasi-government agencies where the public took the losses (these losses are now on the accounting books of the Federal Reserve). In a Ron Paul Presidency, bad lenders would go out of business, not be given bailouts.

The Federal Reserve now holds over $1 trillion in bad loans on it accounting books – let the Federal Reserve get what it deserves – a giant loss as its banks go out of business due to insolvency, just punishment for allowing low interest rates to prevail and create a real estate bubble in the first place. Stop protecting bankers, start protecting your own wealth – vote for Ron Paul!

Without a government backstop to insure home loans, lenders would be more diligent in checking out lender qualifications and incomes. Thefalse demand for housing that the Federal government created would cease and home values would crash, for a short time. But that would be good news – now homes would become affordable.

It is said, if the Federal Government would get out of housing homes prices would tumble by 50%. While that is not good news for the asset-side of lenders accounting books, it is the only way to bring back the housing market in a short time. This is the mark-to-market value accounting that must be practiced. Interest rates on home mortgages would rise, but so would the interest on saved money – Americans would cease losing money on savings accounts (interest on saved money today is less than 1% while inflation is ~7-11%).

While the US economy is said to be the strongest in the world (~$14 trillion), the US is hiding the fact its Gross Domestic Product is actually in decline and that probably half of the GDP is comprised of financial gains from moving money around. An example is the stock market with 70% of its trades now comprised of high-speed millisecond trading. Financial gains are contrived and there is no real value created out of these phony transactions, nor is any employment created. The lending classes will have to face reality. Phony numbers would not likely be a part of a Ron Paul Presidency.

With a groundswell of public support, President Ron Paul would push for a currency that has limited stretchability by backing it with gold. No more rubber money. The fortunes of Americans would cease being eroded by money printing practices at the Federal Reserve. If you missed Ron Paul's object lesson - he recently held up a pre-1964 silver dime (dimes today have no silver in them) and said it is worth ~$3.00 today, about the price of a gallon of gasoline. That means a gold-backed dollar could buy you a full tank of gas. Imagine that?

But inflationary policies have robbed American bank accounts of wealth. The thief of inflation that is robbing your money out the back door of your local bank would be handcuffed. Ron Paul would also push for competing currencies (if this sounds foreign to you, we already have one – its called a VISA card, and don't forget American Express Checks). Creators of currencies who have the most backing in the form of reserves would have the most desired currencies, those who don't would have currencies of lesser value.

So what would happen worldwide with the announcement of a Ron Paul Presidency? Did you see what happened yesterday when the European Union band-aided its currency and debt problems for the time being. Markets soared with even a hint of sound money. Likewise, a Ron Paul Presidency should cause markets to soar just on the announcement of his Presidency. The International Monetary Fund has been begging the US to cut federal spending or devalue its currency by 30%.

The tax and print-money Keynsians would be ousted from power. Phony money would be a thing of the past. Real jobs, not government-contrived jobs that add a 15% administration burden and place the salaries of government workers on the remaining private sector, would be created. Two bad examples are Solyndra and General Motors, both whom received a government-back loan and then sought government contracts to sell solar panels to the US Navy and Chevy Volt electric cars to the federal government's fleet of automobiles. That is nothing but false demand.

Imagine Ron Paul appoints a new chief at the Food and Drug Administration who turns that institution upside down, who complies with the law (Dietary Supplement Health & Education Act) rather than repudiates or ignores it as the current FDA does, and works to allow health claims for natural medicines that work far more safely and effectively than synthetically made drugs, and at much lower cost. Imagine the National Institutes of Health is forced to generate studies to reveal the true effectiveness of vitamins C and D, as previously documented by this author in the archives at, and the life expectancy of Americans soars and their quality of life in their retirement years greatly improves. Dr. Ron Paul is committed to this kind of real change, not give lip service to it.

Imagine for a moment that President Ron Paul, advocate of free markets, calls for a true revamp of the nation's electrical grid unlike the current administration which only gives rhetoric to the idea. With installation of new US-manufactured power cable technology that is able to transmit twice as much power on a single power line with 9-20% greater efficiency (less line loss), averting the need for 98 new fossil-fueled or atomic power plants by stringing just 3000 miles of the nation's power lines with this US-made technology, and bringing $60 billion greater bottom-line profits to power generating companies, your electricity bill would be measurably trimmed instead of continually rising.

Ron Paul – your President. Your vote for RP will cause all of the above and more to happen. This article is just a sampling of what could happen almost overnight. One man, one moment in time, and everything changes on day-one of a RP Presidency. It would the best $39,000 your government could invest (Ron Paul has publicly stated he would take a $39,000/year salary while in office compared to the $400,000/year salary of the incumbent, to set an example).

Don't be dissuaded by bogus claims "Ron Paul is unelectable" or by the menu of wanna-be candidates served up by the news media. The 4th-Estate, the nation's major news sources are not unbiased parties. The news media is in dire financial straits themselves and wants those campaign advertising dollars, particularly the $750 million the incumbent President is likely to raise like he did last election. Ron Paul is electable – by you. Make the election of RP so magnanimous that even vote fraud can't hide it.

Let's recap – no income tax, the Federal government generates revenues by other means; no IRS forms to deal with; no need to send your kids off to phony wars in foreign theatres; no more cut off the top by the Federal Reserve; assurance there really is gold in Ft. Knox; gold-backed money like this nation once had before the banksters cut their own deal at Jekyll Island, South Carolina decades ago and Nixon took America off the gold standard; rising individual purchasing power as inflation is nixed (no need to ask the boss for a raise, your money will buy more), financial gains on your banked money instead of erosion of your wealth via inflation; your chance to own a home will greatly improve rather than the current situation where home ownership is now only a fading American pipe dream; and true reform of healthcare rather than manipulation by those with vested interests.

These are what a Ron Paul Presidency portends. This is Doctor Ron Paul's prescription for the re-installation of sanity in American politics. Entrenched forces and crony capitalism are destroying America. You can fight back. Let the public's voice be heard loud at the ballot box. Vote for Ron Paul so the 99% can have a real opportunity to become the 1%.

You can save your country, save your family, save your nation's future – vote Ron Paul for President.
